Full description

Your evening will start with a warm welcome and a complimentary glass of bubbly to get you in the mood. Then as you set sail, the first course of your 3-course dinner is served. As you enjoy your starter, the ChiJazz band will launch into the first part of their set for the evening. ChiJazz has an extensive repertoire of tunes, ranging from jazz classics to contemporary pop tunes. Popular tunes performed include At Last, Cry Me a River, Girl from Ipanema, Have You Met Miss Jones, Makin’ Whoopee, Mercy Mercy Mercy, Night and Day, and Summertime…to name just a few! As you sail on the newest addition to the fleet, the stunning Millennium Diamond, towards the glittering skyscrapers of Canary Wharf, you will enjoy your main course and perhaps another glass of wine from the bar. As you make room for dessert and tea or coffee, the band will be preparing to return for the second half of their set. Enjoy more great jazz and if the mood takes you, it will be time to take to the floor for a little cheek to cheek action. The dancing continues until you dock at around 23:00, when you will depart.

    Very well organised and very well run.

    Very happy with this experience, the food was very good and was spread out for the entire cruise.The only little niggle was it took a long time to bring the coffee around and I was the last one and there was not much milk left so my coffee was too strong. The people doing the jazz playing were very talented and the Lady singer was very good and had a lovely voice.

    Lovely experience, though a bit lacking

    The experience itself was really nice and all the schedule was adhered to. Easy to find and helpful staff. However, the music was so loud that it was hard to hear each other, and then the dinner wasn't quite as "fancy" as described. However, it was a nice relaxing experience, which was great to share with a loved one.

    Well organised

    Very well organised, an efficient operation. Drink on arrival, starter waiting for us, very well presented , good food: staff were all very efficient and friendly, music was lovely. Seeing the sights of London lit up as we ate was great, not even the short burst of heavy rain could dampen the evening: We thoroughly enjoyed ourselves & would be more than happy to recommend
